"The user interface and dashboards are very good."
"The language support is very good."
"Easy to analyze data by click-through."
"Our Qlikview applications help us to get a good idea of our Client Base Performance and assist us in the decision making for Seasonal Specials. On the other hand QlikView helps us to get a grasp on our Suppliers and helps us to negotiate pricing with them."
"On the positive side, QlikView's scripting is a great asset as it functions as an ETL."
"The management studio is probably the thing we use the most for running quick queries and creating quick reports. Quite often, somebody comes and says, "Hey, can you find XYZ?" It is so much easier just to jump in there and run a quick query."
"SQL Server is very good, it can be used as a transactional database and used to support the data warehouse. Additionally, the ANSI-compliant satisfies our database properties."
"The solution can be used for a host of applications."
"SQL Server scales well."
"Technical support is very good."
"SQL Server is quite user-friendly. I have experience with Oracle and PostgreSQL, so out of three, I like SQL Server a lot."
"SQL Server is quite stable. And now we are using the Lattice 2017 version."
"The replication feature, user interface, reporting services, and notification services are really good. They are providing SQL profiler and SQLCMD as their integrated software, so we don't find it difficult to integrate any of our third-party applications with MS SQL because all of them support MS SQL very clearly."
"There is no automation or drag and drop functionality."
"It would be nice if QlikView could be plugged in into the company's website or an online portal such as QlikSense is capable of. There are ways around but it takes enormous time to develop."
"If a user wanted to see something not included in the application the new object had to be created by a power user or developer because Qlik view's scripting has somewhat of a learning curve."
"The user interface is old."
"The solution is quite costly."
"Performance could be better. But I don't know if it's a problem with my application or with my database."
"The maintenance and tasks should be improved so as to reduce database files."
"For small-scale businesses, Microsoft could improve by removing some limits in SQL Express."
"The way to make cursors and manage raw data in rows can be improved. Currently, the way to construct or build these cursors is very hard, and you can waste memory. You need a highly skilled person to make it more efficient. It can also have support for Cubes, which is the organization of data in different dimensions by using MDX languages."
"Scalability is an area that needs improvement, and the deployment is difficult, which why I'm looking for an appliance to deploy it in a much more scalable way."
"The solution could use better governance on the management side, especially around data governance."
"There is room for improvement in performance when managing a large quality of data and a high number of active users."
"The configuration process can be a little complex."
